I would like to know if there is a good free Linux alternative for MS-Exchange that can work with MS Outlook, in other words a Linux e-mail server with capabilities of organize calendars, tasks, notes (as in Outlook).

I don't know of any such beast and I suspect there isn't one, at least nothing beyond the alpha developemnt stage. (I could be wrong though :-)

StarOffice 5.2 has it all, except mail (don't use 6.x, 'cause they removed the scheduler there).
For mail there are plenty of alternatives: sendmail, postfix, qmail, ....

From your question I get youre looking for a server side replacement.  HP used to market one but it has been squashed. You can head over to bynari.net and check out their exchange-like thingie. Otherwise, for POP and IMAP support Qmail is hard to beat. Not alot of jazz like exchange but rock solid reliability (anyone heard of yahoo mail) and speed on low end gear.

Thanks Mike,

  I'm going to looking for an alternative for Exchange Server (something that does more than email server, but group scheduler, calendar etc)
